About Us

Janet Kendall White
Passionate, Principled and Reliable

I founded Berkshire Group to make a difference. From its inception, Berkshire Group, Inc.’s primary purpose has been to equip leaders in organizations of all disciplines to meet their current goals and prepare for the future. We train leaders at every level of an organization to be effective at setting and accomplishing goals, solving strategically significant problems, running effective meetings and building and maintaining relationships internally and externally that produce positive results.

For over 20 years we have worked with a variety of organizations to bring about this reality. From NASA and the YMCA to manufacturing companies and non-profits. We are committed to professional excellence and continuous development. Let us help bring your organization from where it is to where you want it to be, and together we can plant the seeds of change.

We are passionate about learning and leadership and apply that passion to all that we do. We find every opportunity to utilize our skills to help others both in organizations and out. We believe in patriotism and we support our servicemen who fight for the freedom that see being taken for granted. When we can apply our skills to volunteer opportunities and know it will make a difference we do. Though each of us has our own individual passions and personalities the intersection is in making a difference, developing leaders and being willing to push our own learning and self awareness and influencing others to do the same.

We have applied Everything DiSC in our own lives both personally and professionally and we KNOW it works and makes a difference. We will not and cannot promote or teach something we haven't applied ourselves and seen a positive impact.
